Last Saturday I returned to Northville to attend a tea hosted by the Northville Historical Society. It was a sell-out event.
The tea was held at Cady Inn at Mill Race Village, and the teapot sign out front let us know we were at the right place.
The interior of Cady Inn was cheerfully decorated for spring.
~ The tables were set with eclectic china, and below was my place setting ~
~ Attendees arriving ~
~ I loved how they covered the sandwiches with a damp lace doily to prevent dryness ~
~ Yummy Scones ~
Sandwiches with Raspberry Black Tea. My favorite was the Walnut Date with Honeyed Cream Cheese, but they were all good.
~ Desserts ~
When we finished eating we walked over to the nearby village church where the program was held.
"Lady Carol" presented an entertaining program about gloves, parasols, tussie-mussies [and the the flowers inside], fans and hankies in Victorian times.
What an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
